Okay so I’m totally in love with Bethenny Frankel’s brand ‘skinny girl’ … like she is my idol. However, this post is in no way related to that (just clearing that up). I wanted to share what I order when I go out drinking to prevent the calories/sugar from racking up too quickly. For those of you who don’t know, I work for a marketing company promoting DIAGEO brand spirits– with a main focus on Ketel One, Crown Royal, Smirnoff, and Captain Morgan. Thus, I pretty much live in bars, clubs, and restaurants. This also leads to a lot of team happy hours and events that revolve around booze. (poor me right?) ha.
As much fun as this job is, I really take my health seriously and don’t like to drink too many of my calories on a day-to-day basis. Thus, the need to order low-calorie cocktails…
So here is my absolute favorite concoction to order that pretty much any bar can make:
“Single-Tall, Ketel One Oranje with Club Soda and a splash of Pineapple Juice”
Super duper simple, low calorie, and tastes amazing! Ketel One Oranje is naturally flavored as is only 64 calories per shot. Club soda is obviously zero calories and the splash of pineapple juice is probably like 5 calories… so who cares about that, right?! Also, I order a single-tall because it makes it last longer with the same amount of booze as a short. I do this mainly because sometimes I find myself sipping on my cocktail simply because it’s in my hands and it feels natural to take a sip, even if I don’t really want it. This helps to slow down how many drinks you are consuming and still keep your hands and mouth occupied.
PS- I have a lot of my friends hooked on this drink. Girls are always asking me what I ordered when I go to the bar, so I figured I’d share on here my little secret.
